Online gaming company eyes U.S. market

Published December 07. 2012 4:00AM

Online game company Zynga says it has asked Nevada gambling regulators for a decision that could pave the way for it to enter the U.S. gambling market.

This follows Zynga's October disclosure that it has signed a deal to offer online poker and casino games, played with real money, in the U.K. It plans to launch those games in the first half of 2013.

Zynga Inc. said Wednesday that it is seeking an "application for a preliminary finding of suitability" from the Nevada Gaming Control Board, part of its plan to enter regulated "real-money gaming" markets.
